I live in a very small town in Indiana (sort of close to Greenfield, actually) and my husband and I bought 11 chickens and a coop in February. No sooner than we sat the coop in the yard, a neighbor came over (on the town board) and told us there was an ordinance against them.
I'm looking for any pointers or suggestions we can use to get them to make an exception or change the ordinance, etc. The chickens are getting to the age where they need to be outside and I'm considering asking the town board to hold a special meeting so we can discuss this. My small town just adopted another small town's ordinance and part of it was because our town had one resident who kept turkeys, pheasants, chickens, roosters, and did not take care of it properly, it was a mess!
If anyone as any suggestions please let me know. Can't imagine having to get rid of our chickens now plus the fact we spent a pretty penny on the Amish made coop.
